Sacramento Kings coach Mike Brown has significantly improved the franchise and is reportedly seeking a substantial reward for his efforts. Following reports that Brown desires a “long-term commitment at his market rate,” new information suggests he is aiming for an eight-figure salary.

According to Yahoo! Sports senior NBA reporter Jake Fischer, Brown’s expected salary request aligns with recent large contracts for other NBA coaches. With notable paydays such as Monty Williams’ $70-plus million deal with Detroit and Mike Budenholzer’s $10 million annual salary with the Suns, Brown’s contract extension discussions are likely to revolve around similar figures.

The coaching market has been highly dynamic, with the Los Angeles Lakers recently firing Darvin Ham after two seasons and searching for a new coach. This instability underscores the significance of Brown’s achievements with the Kings. Since being hired before the 2022-23 season, he has revitalized the team, earning NBA Coach of the Year and ending the Kings’ 16-season playoff drought.

Despite missing the playoffs this past season, Brown’s leadership has been praised for bringing consistency to the organization. In his end-of-season interview, Brown expressed his excitement about staying in Sacramento and his commitment to improving the team’s performance.

Kings general manager Monte McNair has also shown support for Mike Brown, highlighting the positive impact he has had over the past two years. As Brown and McNair plan for the future, the decision on Brown’s contract extension will be crucial for the Kings’ long-term success.
